I haven't played a Pokemon game since Emerood. The new games are weird and scary.
>Naming your pokemon in all caps

How about piss off you dickhead???

>port them to my brothers black version
>fully ev'd through feathers
>port to my started white version
>replace the starter with what I choose, gibble and giratina
>have a blast playing it the way I want to play the game

Pokemon isn't had but I've always wanted to "choose" my starter pokemon so I did just that
I had a blast
Emerald was the only pokemon game
i actually finished before and 100% percented
was fuckin dooope.
AlphA sapphire was awful.
I started playing Star Sapphire now that romhacks are playable without a Gateway.

The difficulty was great until I got to Roxanne. Any sense of balance was thrown out the window.

>stealth rock and sticky web, hey that's neat
>Amaura with Refrigerate and Round, makes Grass Types useless
>Lileep with Storm Drain, makes water types useless
>only fighting type is Makuhita, but via NPC trade, so it won't listen
>no steel, rock or ground types

There's literally nothing I can aside from over level. Unless I restart and pick Torchic, but I don't wanna do that.
Goddamn the grinding in this game is painful.
I wanna get all the pokemon i want in my team to level 20
to atleast be on par with the current trainers i'm vsing in the story
but even then the trainer levels are going to surpass my pokemon
levels which just means i need to grind more later on. Fuck my life.
I haven't even got to her other 3 Pokemon, which are apparently Aron, Carbink and fucking Probopass.

I regret getting oshawott for a starter and wished
i got tepig instead, the incredible amount of grass
pokemons so far is fuckin insane.
OP, there's no need for on /v/ for a pokemon thread,
there's an entire board for that!
Just in case you didn't know.

better start over kid, Pokemon have canonically lower-case letter names from Gen 5 and onwards.

I bet you named your rival something gay as Hugh

why do you have only four pokemon? There's dozens you could have caught in the areas up to that point. If you want to swap out something for a new one later then you can do so without remorse, the gen 5 games (Black/White and the sequels) have scaling EXP gains so lower level monsters catch up quick.

I haven't played Pokemon since my Y version playthrough, I was kinda put off by what I saw and heard of ORAS despite gen 3 being my second favourite after gen 5. Maybe I'll pick up Alpha Sapphire at some point, though. I make it a point not to plan things out too much, it just sucks the fun out of trying new things in each game. Though I would have to pick Treecko as starter for old times' sake in ORAS' case.
>Gen 5 and onwards.
B2W2 is the best in the series and it's not even close.

The thing is, you need to realize that you don't need to match the NPC trainers' levels. Ever. Just build a balanced team with good type coverage and slap the HMs you need somewhere in there, use basic strategy like stat boosting moves/status conditions/switching pokemon (and if all else fails use a bunch of potions) and you will never run into trouble unless you're playing some crazy romhack like >>315380261

tl;dr Pokemon requires zero grinding and you're just inviting tedium if you think otherwise
I tried playing Diamond
I fell asleep after the first gym.
I'm too old for this shit
I don't even get what you're laughing at.
>plays worst game
>hurr im too old
Just use speed toggle, nigga like holy shit

I post on /v/ to weed through the critizism and bullshit
for decent advice like this. Cheers man.

Cutest mon.
No problem, a lot of the time /v/irgins take offense to the suggestion that they're making their experience with a Pokemon game worse by grinding when I see no reason to. In Gold/Silver/Crystal and HeartGold/SoulSilver, Red's team is in the lv80 range, yet I usually reach his doorstep and beat him with my team in the 50-60 range. Of course, his levels are way inflated because he's a single trainer as opposed to the gauntlet that the League challenge + regional Champ offers in most other games. But it's all always doable, if not by pure strategy, then at least through attrition and abusing bad AI. And I say that's a lot more interesting and satisfactory than just steamrolling everything through overleveling.

And hey, the gen 6 games now have the new and revised Exp Share that was pretty much made for people who like grinding, so those people can be appeased too.
I recently tried the new pokemans too. The only difference is I'm playing through a 151 hack of black 2. I have to say the hack is adding quite a lot in terms of variety, and challenge in the gyms. Being that I play pokemans casually I was actually forced to look up counters and what have you in order to progress through these gyms. If you're interested in checking it out it also has a black1 counterpart and they both go by the name 'Blazing Black'.
>Have you guys started a new pokemon

Fire always
>Plans for you team?
Trying nuzlocke run haven't played since original ruby
>Pokemon thread go.
I did this with soul silver, started with a low level Pidgey, I think it was. It was just a different way to pay through the game.
I just got an emulator on my phone so I can play a ROM hack of Pokemon Crystal. I've played Gen 1 to death and decided to get into Gen 2 again. The hack I'm playing, Crystal Kaizo, includes all 251 Pokemon (with a secret 252nd Pokemon) since you can't exactly trade with real people. Not only that, it makes the overall game more difficult. Gym leaders all have six Pokemon including some curve balls that will counter whatever Pokemon they're supposed to be weak against. Dungeons and maze areas are completely reconstructed for fresh puzzle areas. It's fucking sick and really makes me engrossed in my playthrough. Oh, and I picked based Totodile.
>B2W2 is the best in the series

Not when HG/SS exist

>Pokemon Nuzlocke Run

Goddamn thats some hard nostalgia for me.
Remember sitting around with my friends
and playing nuzlocke

I just finished Pokemon tumblr edition (aka reborn), it was actually not too bad, aside from the forced as shit gender progressiveness and erratic difficulty curve.

If you like pokemon and looking for a challenge, and you can see past the obvious agenda, it's really quite good

When HANS got released I started playing Neo Y and Rutile Ruby. Rutile Ruby is hard as balls but quite fun, though the wild encounters aren't very interesting and the gym leaders are stressful as hell because they have smogon-tier teams and I don't have the resources yet to compete with that. Neo Y has good wild encounters but the trainer battles are hard. And not in a good way like Rutile Ruby, just retarded level scaling and impossible movesets.
Also started a Firered randomiser a while ago, and am like almost done Crystal. I've got like 10 saves going at once fuck

Nah, thats unovabortions, followed by genwunners, followed by hoennbabbies
Even numbered gens are the only good ones
>bred XL pumpkaboos during pokemon X
>Alpha Sapphire has been so shit I have only just beat elite 4

Is it even worth playing after this
I always wanted to try a hack but they all sound like autistic shit both mechanically and storywise.

And that's fucking bizarre in a series so devoid of the latter.
G2fags are just hipster genwunners trying not to look like genwunners.

you could try voltwhite or blazeblack, it keeps the story but is balls hard, though you have access to a LOT of mons

reborn is pretty simple to start up(and free of course), so you can always give it a shot and bin it if you don't like it

I always end up out leveling all the trainers because I battle every single one in every corner of the room and end up with more xp than what the designers would expect a kid to have for each gym. Battle every trainer and finish off some wild pokemon now and then. Also basic strategy should help you win as well, the game is designed for kids to beat afterall.
>implying I only want to fuck 6 pokemon
Fuck off normalfag, I'd fuck literally every Pokemon that's not Probopass, Roggenrola, etc
You didn't have fun?
If Hg/SS had a better level curve, it would be perfect.
BW2 gives you a wide variety of Pokemon to play around with, the NPCs have charm, the cities and environments are also enjoyable, and Johto has no Hydreigon.
Unova has Hydreigon.
Clearly one of these regions have something baller going on here.
Yeah, I dropped Neo X before the first gym. The NPCs are fucking bullshit.
dude what
G1 is objectively bad, especially when FR/LG exist
>implying I have access to even half the Pokemon I wanna fuck at any point in the games

Baka senpai desu.
>thread full of /vp/ trying to claim Gen5 and Gen2 aren't good.

Go back to your OR/AS hug box. I know it's slow and full of cancer, but hopefully that will improve when Super comes out.

HG/SS ≥ B2/W2 > B/W > Platinum > Emerald > FR/LG > G/S/C > X/Y > OR/AS > D/P > R/S > R/B/Y
Well I obviously meant 6 pokemon you'd SPECIALLY like to fuck. Sure I could too go for any 6, but only certain pokemon I'd call waifus.

Pleb as fuck, love is for sharing.
I just don't like gen 2's level scaling and monster availability. Every other player's team ends up looking the same and the game crams two short regions into the same length as the other games in the series. HGSS repeat these mistakes and also suffer from gen 4's slow-ass engine on top of it.

Last one i played was x, was good until i got endgame and it was shit. I have a perfect squirtle and a shiny squirtle on it.

Most favorite was probably platinum, im too busy with nostalrius nowadays to have patience for platinum
HG/SS are the only pokémon games I haven't played to completion, they're that bad.
I'm hard pressed to pick a "best" but HGSS is certainly has the best UI.
I'd hug them all.
